PHOENIX — File this one under, “What the hell were they thinking?!” Six white high school girls in Phoenix are getting slammed on social media for this picture…
(Courtesy: News 12)
Your eyes are not deceiving you. Their shirts spell out “N-I-*-*-E-R.” And in true teen fashion, they posted the picture to Facebook, setting off outrage across the country.
Tempe Union High School District would not comment on the “swift disciplinary action” they took, but there are reports the girls… who are seniors… have been suspended for five days.
And that’s pissed off social media even more…
So again how are those chick's wearing the NI**ER shirt walking the stage? I need answers. 5 day suspension is nothing when your graduating.
